Imagination: Apple relations still rotten but, hey, losses have shrunk

Camilla Smythe

I think we should Follow Angela Leadsom's Lead....

.... Be more patriotic and boycott Apple. That'll show them. I see Mr Gove has already sorted out the fish situation. Maybe we can also tell BMW, or is it AUDI?, where to get off with their car users not knowing how to use indicators and the EU forcing our Great British Workers to fit them anyway. I may have some other ideas in respect of Doner Kebab Containers, the baked flour bit stupids, being converted back to Two Feet and Three Inches. Can't afford a full one... Fuck off down the food bank where you belong. Simples. Oh and if you are not fully invested on AIM and averaged down to the hilt on Wonga... Fuck off back to your own country.

Angela Leadsom's coming today. Tra La La La La La.

Angela Leadsom's coming today. Tra La La La La La La.

Fuck off Corbyn. You are just as shit but I wrote a better song for Angela. Loser. Oh and just in case fuck off Trump. I'm not going to write you a song. Hope someone dumps salt on you when you try to backdoor any entry the UK and it has the desired effect.

Four Brits cuffed in multimillion-quid Windows tech support call scam probe

Camilla Smythe

Action Fraud

My last experience with The Lads from India ran 6 hours over four days and involved 6 telephone calls. They took time off over the weekend. I repeatedly called Local Plod and Action Fraud and begged them to intercept my communications. Zero Fucks Given let alone any Action Taken. Local Plod tried to argue that this was the reason why they needed to intercept everything. I have no idea which earworm was in place such that he missed that I, in this particular case, was begging them to do so.

End game, second call on Tuesday, I was asked to restart my computer so I ask them how to restart a virtual machine. Then we go through the problem with my credit card numbers not working which has stopped them extracting £650 from my bank account via the account they have set up for me through Western Union, apparently Western Union is Microsofts Bank and the £650 was a refund from Microsoft for being slightly rubbish. Then we get back to shutting down my virtual machine.

It takes a bit of time for my expert to twig but he finally gets it, I can hear him asking his mates, and then he gets a bit upset about me wasting so much of his time so I explain that he has been had and how he has been had then he asks me 'Are You Ghandu?' I do not know what that means but eventually after being asked a couple of times he triumphs and explains it to me. I tell him I am not, he does not have my money and ask him 'Who is the Fool?' He hangs up.

I call up Western Union who are suitably thick and pass me around the houses until one of their staff works it out and matches the account and details to the creation time and suggests they have cancelled it. I can probably reliably guess that they have cancelled the account set up on my behalf but completely failed to investigate the account that my £650 not refund was being sent to.

Perhaps someone from Western Union can rock up and tell me how seriously they take such matters.

Perhaps someone from Remote Desktop Connection companies can can rock up and tell me how seriously they take such matters.

Perhaps someone from Action Fraud can rock up and tell me how seriously they take such matters.

Please do not bother. You do Not.

UK Parliament hack: Really, a brute-force attack? Really?

Camilla Smythe

Re: All of your communications with @parliament.uk are gifted to Symantec via Messagelabs.

Yup.. GTT. That's one of them. Presumably related to,

http://static.symanteccloud.com/estore/Datasheets/en/Product/SHAV_SHAS/AV_AS_Datasheet.pdf

Anti Spam and Anti Virus.

"Unique ‘Link following’ feature (scanning of URLs within emails for potential links to malware), providing an additional layer of protection for your business."

It will/does download pdfs but does not scan links within them so you could still manage to provide a link within a document that would/could lead the recipient to a nasty. As such it is not bullet proof.

OK Fine it's a 'useful' service but it is still gifting what might be potentially sensitive and ideally privileged information about your communications with your parliamentary representatives.

All of your communications with @parliament.uk are gifted to Symantec via Messagelabs.

Send an e-mail with a link to content on your own Web Server to an @parliament.uk address. Wait two minutes and check the web server logs. The content of your e-mail and any attached document will be scanned and you will get a visit from Germany, the US or London to check the contents of any links provided. Apparently it is 'a service' provided by MessageLabs. I would be more concerned about that than some Russian trying to hack passwords. America already has full access to your personal discussions with a member of Parliament or a member of The House of Lords.

UK Tory party pledges 'digital' charter, wants Verify to back online gov

Camilla Smythe

Well Done Mrs May...

I assume this means you will remove all third party tracking devices from websites hosted on gov.uk and nhs.uk

Oh silly me. It's not so much that you do not know your arse from your elbow but in the battle for control of your mouth the bit that should have known the difference turned into a desiccated walnut and the elbow won.

Proposed PATCH Act forces US snoops to quit hoarding code exploits

Camilla Smythe

Assuming a Level Playing Field Within The Intelligence Community....

Would it not make sense for all sides to 'burn' their exploits on the assumption that all sides, assuming they are equally capable, are all holding the same deck of dodgy cards.

"Hit em with CLFUCK04!!"

"It got burned."

"No! That's Ours Goddammit."

"Apparently they knew about it."

"WTF!!?"

WannaCrypt ransomware snatches NSA exploit, fscks over Telefónica, other orgs in Spain

I would have posted my wisdom on The Daily Mail but I got bored waiting for it to load up the Celebrity Tits and Arses.

Obviously this Forum will be more receptive to the message.

Just how screwed is IT at the Home Office?

Camilla Smythe

I blame Data Bases.

If you cannot set up an arbitrary record type in memory, save it to a hard disk and recover the same data from the hard disk within the same memory based record without FUCKING FAFFING ABOUT WITH THE INTERMEDIATE SHIT......

Ohm.. Ohm.. Ohm..

"Master, they have implemented Data Bases."

"Interesting. How do they access them?"

"They use a Structured Query Language."

"This sounds like an additional layer of shit."

"Indeed Master I have not been able to penetrate the other layers."

"Do you think we should gift them our wisdom?"

"It pains me to say we should let them die of their consequences."

"Ah well. Set a course for the next one."

"Yes Master."

Ambient light sensors can steal data, says security researcher

Camilla Smythe

Re: OK so the browser reads ambient light leve to adjust screen brightness and font size

Is the browser just a "dumb window" on your phone/tab/PC/laptop or is it more active?

Last I checked, according to our profile of you, you are a "dumb fuck" and those who are better than you need to "improve your browsing experience" in order to justify your existence. If you have a problem with that you can just fuck off and not use the Inter Tubes.

World's worst botnet fiends switch from ransomware to stock scam spam

Camilla Smythe

Another Change to the Modus Operandi...

New Text is,

Alright, let's get right to it...

We've been out of touch for a while. I've been very busy looking for the next big stock that has the potential to explode and it took me months to find one.

If I can be honest, this one came to me as a god send. I got lucky. I have this friend who works at a law firm in NYC and we've known each other for a very long time.

Long story short, he told me that his firm is about to finalize a big takeover by a multibillion corporation. They're buying this tiny company that is now trading at just around 10 cents a share.

I couldn't believe my ears when I heard him say that they're paying somewhere between $1.30 and $1.39 for the company. The deal is closing and being announced mid next week.

I could get into what the company does, but who really cares right? All we need to know is that they are in the high tech industry and that this is going to be a huge buyout.

I recommend you buy shares as soon as possible today and wait it out until you get paid over $1.30 next week. The way takeovers work is that they will just credit this price per share, in cash, to your brokerage account and in exchange will take the shares that you bought at just pennies.

I may never have another tip like this, so cash in on it while you still can.

I have now received this message five times today... and from different people so obviously it is legit. I've spent at least another five hours screaming at my broker to buy and the fucking idiot says he needs to know which company.

Like WTF?!1!?

It's the company that is trading at "just around 10 cents a share" and is going to get bought out "somewhere between $1.30 and $1.39" DOH!

Home Office admits it's preparing to accept EU ruling on surveillance

Camilla Smythe

Basically....

They have just admitted that they do not have the technical capability to collect Internet Connection Records but are using the Judgement that says they are not allowed to do so in order to avoid admitting as much.

Why... just last week I developed a Pure Fusion Weapon with Stark Trek Transportation Delivery Capability and someone said I was spouting shit. As things turn out it would be in violation of some nuclear proliferation treaty so I have decided not to implement it.

What, may one ask, is the point of, some of, these companies blarting on about removing their advertising from Google when they smear DoubleClick, the advertising arm of Google, all over their web pages thereby allowing Google to profile their visitors and make advertising coin out of them... possibly even sell them services from a competitor...?

Google DoubleClick

The basic premise being that as a result of .gov.uk, and nhs.uk, and their insistence of smearing Google, and of course Facebook and Twitter, tracking devices all over their websites means that The Populace has been pwnd by said companies.

Do not forget that these are US companies as well and whilst Mr Trump Trumps about surveillance conspiracy theories as gifted to him by Russians I think I might have more substantial concerns about 'our' data being gifted to the US by .gov.uk

Of course in as much as Mr Trumps Mind is not Deep his destruction of healthcare, such as it is, in the US appears to mirror our Governments attitude towards the NHS and then...

https://twitter.com/SarahJamieLewis/status/842845306031034368

Google has a Deep, and abusive, Mind.

Just in case I have not been clear about this, as a general rule I am not known for clear expression of thought... I do not care if Government adverts appear alongside dodgy stuff on You Tube. Naturally I block ads so I do not see it anyway and otherwise "ISIS Chopping Heads Off" is not a search term I might use on a regular basis... unless, as a result of recent events, I was looking for Government adverts on You Tube.

What I do care about is that Government is arbitrarily, without thought and without the informed knowledge of The Populace gifting all of this tracking information to Google and the rest, burning tax payers money for the privilege whilst not recovering tax and when 'Targeted Advertising' goes wrong the best they can do is moan a bit rather than going hardcore and stripping all of Googles, and the other companies, tracking rubbish out of their websites.

London Internet Exchange members vote no to constitution tweak

Camilla Smythe

Re: Abandon all Hope. They are all gagging for it.[1]

"You mentioned Brexit in a negative / dismissive way."

I think I mentioned Brexit in terms of the vote afforded to members of Linx in as much that, for such an important decision, a 75% majority was required to pass the vote whereas in the case of Brexit no such requirement was in place. However the result was sufficiently marginal and presented in such a loaded way that if they were to apply pressure and run it again GCHQ would be on site and inserting their black boxes and fibre taps into the system.

Otherwise you are quite correct to assume that I see nothing positive in respect of Brexit and, given only 26% of the population voted to hang the rest along with themselves, would prefer to dismiss it as a bad nightmare.

Unfortunately Mrs May is in charge along with a number of other loony tunes not least including an ineffective opposition. Mrs May is 'tits oot' for Brexit at any cost. Mrs May is responsible for Linx having to act as a result of the IPAct because she is 'tits oot' for a surveillance state. Mrs May is 'tits oot' for immigration control... All the things she has failed at in the past can now be 'corrected'.

You don't know why people did what they did so casual anti brexit is casual twattery.

I could take a reasoned guess but since you are here perhaps you can explain it to me in words of more than one syllable without resorting to "You Lost. Get over It." or similar.

Seriously, not really, I respect and would consider fighting for your right to shoot both of your own feet off but might become slightly concerned if, having done so, you insist on decimating the NHS and indeed other industries such that you, and others, will not receive medical attention or courgettes and subsequently crawl about on the floor like a zombie trying to chew my ankles.

If you read RevK he seems to spend a lot of time sorting out problems created by BT.

I wish I could find a link to the manky little twat, name him and post his CV.. Digs into brain... Mark Hughes.

Now... Whilst RevK apparently knows about security Mark Hughes has been promoted from failed burger seller to the security job by BT. As a result you might wish to ask yourselves who has more influence over LINX.

UK spying law delayed while Lords demand Leveson amendments

Camilla Smythe

Re: Meanwhile in Turkey....

@chris...

Just in case I missed off the <sarc> tags but I kind of get the impression you understood where I was coming from and your response got a bit broken. I think @Gray gets it.

My opinion is that May is a borderline psychotic who, having spent much of her time failing at the Home Office, is now out to prove she can succeed at her previous remit. That, in part, would be the introduction of The Investigatory Powers Bill and a reduction/elimination/reversal of Immigration. She is in a better position to do this than she has ever been and has a bunch of baying sycophantic loonies to back her up.

I have played an ineffectual part in campaigning against the #IPBill prior to Brexit. Lah Lah Lah... We're not listening. In respect of Brexit I have taken a narrow view of matters but become more aware of just how much of an extensive and damaging clusterfuck it is likely to become over a wide range of issues.

Prior to Brexit, IIRC, Cameron supported the ECHR and, apparently, May did as well. Presumably hanging on his coat-tails. There were however mumblings about a British Bill of Rights. My narrow view was that if we left the EU we would lose a wide range of protections that result from EU legislation being written into UK law and, in particular, protections that apply to communications. ICRs are a particular case in point.

As the #IPBill is, loosely, written you might get the impression that there has been an effort to avoid too many noises under PECR, implemented according to 2002/85/EC. ICRs supposedly only include information that ISPs already collect as a result of providing their services..

http://eur-lex.europa.eu/legal-content/EN/TXT/PDF/?uri=CELEX:32002L0058&from=EN

Article 5) begins Page 7)

After Brexit, with Cameron gone, May changes her mind and goes back on the British Bill of Rights tack. We now have some sort of Great Blah-Blah Bollocks. Whatever it may be I envisage an effort to get rid and re-implement law/legislation within the UK and take the opportunity to scrub out any, as many, and all protections that existed before.

Elsewhere I live in fear not of what this Country has become but what Brexit has exposed this Country to already be and the opportunity taken by others to crawl out of the wood now that the environment is right for them. I do not think rational minds will prevail. I do not think rational minds will be listened to.

Just what Europe needs – another bungled exit: Mars lander goes AWOL

Re: They don't want us

The aforementioned developments would be a lot funnier if I didn't have my livelihood tied up on this island.

I do hope you still have an exit strategy.

Best Wishes

Re: They don't want us

Seems to be obvious. Or was it the Brits calculating in imperial measures again?

Cough...

In news elsewhere 'The Brits', or rather their supposed leaders, are intent on totally fucking over the country and doing a blistering job of it so whilst NASA can roger a space craft they have nothing on us.... unless.

Oh, one notes that your user name, Herbert Fruchtl, appears to be a bit foreign. May one enquire what you are doing posting subversive messages to a UK website? Surely you have your own bit of the intertubes to play with and, as you should know, the #IPBill is going to let GCHQ sort you Foreign Johnnies out. God Save Mother Theresa. Rah! Rah! Rah! Tea and Biccies anyone. Jolly Hockey Sticks.

Gosh Toodle Pip.

Apple’s macOS Sierra update really puts the fan into 'fanboi'

Re: You're Wrong Sir.

for those who think it's funny to ask an inanimate object whether they love them or not.

Seems to work fine with my wife.

I suppose we all need somewhere to park the bike. When did you pass her away?

Hey! spies! Get! in! here! and! explain! this! Yahoo! email-scanning! 'kernel! module!'

Huh?

This has allowed us to bring a better search experience to Yahoo Mail.

May one enquire as to whom it is 'better for'... Spooks, Advertisers or Users?

Reseller offered $$$ for old tech gear – then stiffed thousands with suddenly lower quotes

Camilla Smythe

If an offer looks too good to be true

Meh... I buy all my 2TB USB drives from e-bay for £0.50. I must have about 400TB of photos by now.

Bargain!!

R2D2 delivery robots to scurry through the streets of San Francisco

Camilla Smythe

Re: fixed hazards will be the real challenge

Ah... Yes. However Bullitt failed to trash his 'pinto'[?] on said streets so the robots will be OK. Presumably the fixie delivery bike riders in said city have a different set of gears on their flop-flips to go with their massive thighs and perceive no threat.

UK copyright troll weeps, starts 20-week stretch in the cooler for beating up Uber driver

Re: 20 wks in prison! He's a kid for fucks sake!

WTF...? Unacceptable even if trying to be ironic. Unacceptable. Shame on you.

You are quite right. It was a piss poor attempt to highlight the offenders lack of respect for others. Post withdrawn.

Re: Sadly very true

Perhaps others may have missed the sarcasm in your post thereby resulting in you getting more down votes than up votes.

I am sure that what you meant to say rather than imply is something along the lines of...

<sarc>Company officers actually have a legal duty to operate the company in a financially responsible manner.</sarc>

However the regulatory authorities involved, in this case financial, are either clueless shitwanks, limp thickdicks, in someone else's pocket, taking bribes or expect to parachute out of their 'public service' job into an executive role for the offending company on more money than they get at the moment along with a Golden Goodbye and Pension Pot from their previous 'public service role' so fuck all happens.

The previous applies to any and all regulatory authorities, unless they are fucking over a 'public service entity' whereby any fine and/or costs are paid for by your taxes, and, as a result, nothing short of exploding dildo LiION batteries will wake them from their slumber, probably not, having crawled off the wife in order to drool on the dog whilst snoring after another exceptional one minute performance with 10 inches of rock hard meat, 'Mr Limp' failed to protrude beyond the belly, leaving the wife to finish the job off and then the bean counters will still do a cost-benefit analysis.

Err... You might prefer to use different words.

Forgive me, father, for I have used an ad-blocker on news websites...

Camilla Smythe

When I wert lad....

We had feature in browser called 'narrow slot mode' which were invoked by them there free toolbar things. Then I learned stuff and got rid only to find that later screen filled up with browsing experience enhancements disguised as adverts for socks. Anyways once again I learned stuff and got rid but browser reverted to 'narrow slot mode' what with all the little blocky icons filling up the top bit. Then narrow slot just says 'we use cookies to improve your browsing experience', blah blah and when I click the x to make that go away instead of it being replaced with pictures of socks some other message comes up saying I have to switch off my blocky thing to look at the sock pictures and I'm like 'which fucking one you twats?'
